tv, ben shapiro contends that liberals are guilty of bullying their opposition and creating an environment that discourages political debate. this heritage foundation event is a little under an hour. [applause] >> it's always a pleasure to be here: i'm a huge fan of heritage foundation, everything that they do, actually. they were the first outlet to pick up my syndicated column. i do have a fourth book before "bullies," i spoke here at heritage for that too. i'm also the editor at large of breitbart news, so if you're bored or have an ipad, you can tune in at 870.com. i want to start by talking about andrew breitbart. andrew was a mentor of mine. i met andrew when i was 17 years old. he had just seen a column i wrote for the ucla daily bruin, and he was sitting in a greasy taco joint, saw the column and then promptly e-mailed me. at the time, andrew was just the secret other half of the drudge report. we got together, we became fast friends. and one of the things that andrew and i used to talk about a lot because we knew each other for over a decade before his untimely death, he used to t
significantly, down 7.3%, at $13.16 a share. talking about their environment, obviously, there's a tough environment trying to sell old-school books and compete with amazon. you talk e-readers, and that's putting them under pressure today and the nook. talk about the nook and outlook, they talk about a loss for 2013, more than expected, more than of a loss than they thought, and as a result, the stock is tanking. back to you. >> thank you very much, nicole. leapfrog jumping ahead. profit up 90% year over year, and sales rising 16% in the fourth quarter could be a 28% pop in full year revenue. john bash -- john barber, the ceo, you had earnings, down 20% in six months. what's wrong with the picture? >> well, it's actually 70% in 12 months -- >> you joined the company, i believe? >> two years ago. we had four of the top ten selling products last year. i'm a holder of leap frog and excited. i believe the market will have the opportunity in the near future. >> the company came up with the first leap pad, in i think, 1999 or so, surprised they didn't have the ipad, coasted on your coat tails,
, these are difficult environments as opposed to houston where you can do whatever you want, whenever you want to. >> right. >> so i think that the rental housing market i think is going to continue to be very strong. like it was too good and then everybody had to come up with a reason why it wasn't. >> is the home mortgage deduction going to come back on the table? does that have anything to do with the rental issue you're talking about? >> i actually think home mortgage deductions are going to come back on the table. i think they're going to ultimately either be eliminated as they were in canada, and when they were eliminated in canada, everybody said, oh, my god, it's the end of the housing market, and it was hardly a blip. or it will be cut to deductions on the first $100,000 or something, so you're effectively protecting the middle class. >> thank you for this. >> yeah, sam, it has been a pleasure having you here today. >> my pleasure. >> we really appreciate hearing from you. sam zell has been our guest host for the last two hours. you're putting your money where your mouth is. it's all abo

, immigration, the environment, everything basically, but his lead on foreign policy is a staggering 14 points. what makes republicans think this is a good thing to have a fight over? >> right. up until recently everybody said, look, politics stops at the water's edge, and that hasn't been the case for the last couple years with this republican party. but it turns out that it wasn't necessarily that both parties followed that axiom because they were being nice about it. it turns out that it's incredibly bad politics to challenge your sitting president overseas. and, you know, this benghazi thing has not worked out for the republican party at all. they tried effectively to make it the biggest issue of the presidential campaign in the last several weeks, and people just didn't buy into it. what they saw is a tragedy. something that was -- if it could have been prevented, it should have been prevented, but they weren't going to start pointing blame and ask for the resignations of hillary clinton and throw barack obama out of office. >> right. >> and the idea that you'd be able to stop future cia
of with those benefits that we're not able to have right now. i hope that casey grows up in an environment where they'll look back at this and say wow, you know, this is crazy that they had to go through that. but i hope that sees that her parents are proud enough to step up and fight for her equality as well. >> around thanksgiving, charlie morgan told the "washington post" that she was praying that the supreme court would hear the challenge to doma quickly. she said, quote, i really need to be alive when they actually do overturn doma. otherwise karen is not guaranteed anything. charlie morgan did not make it that far. she died on sunday morning. she was 48 years old. the "washington post" reports that her widow karen will not receive survivor benefits. the paper also notes that in ordinary times, charlie and karen would have been glad for the new executive order allowing the family to shop on military bases. we asked today whether officer charlie morgan had heard about the changes that secretary panetta was preparing to announce today. the answer is that it appears she had not. she apparently
environment? >> no, i don't think cruz is the symbol of a deeper problem. i think senator cruz, you know, you hear whispers about this that he's rubbing some people the wrong way. and by the way, these whispers are coming from other republicans as well as democrats. it's by bipartisan, but that is more of the hey, you're the new guy, you know, why don't you learn the ropes here and play by a more civil set of rules? but i don't think -- i think that's -- i do think on the senate side, i'm with senator coburn. there really is more at least a friendlier atmosphere. senators actually -- bipartisan senators actually go to lunch together. >> you need to remember how uncivil i was supposedly accused of being when i got here when i took on ted stevens and arlen specter. there's no change. you work your way into the senate. you build relationships, and then you work bipartisanly. >> let me just say, i mean, i've known you for a long time, tom. you were uncivil. and then you grew a beard and you've become an elder statesman of sorts. >> elder is the only correct word that could be associated with me.
. in this environment right now, how does this change? what should the president do? >> well, i think he's laid a proposal out there. i think it's a good proposal. i think in the end what'll probably happen is he'll get it through if he sticks to it and he'll negotiate. it might not be $9 an hour, but maybe it's 8.25ds an hour. look, if you're right there on the brink of making $7.25 an hour, a dollar an hour more might mean something to you. look, in new orlealouisiana, in where i live right now, they have a 9.5% sales tax. they're talking about raising it to 14% maybe. can you imagine what that does to a minimum wage worker down here? it just slaughters people. thank god we've got people that are willing to stand up and point out what's going on here, how you can help these people without having any effect on employment. i don't know why we haven't done this a long time ago to tell you the truth. >> let's talk about congress for a moment. today we saw officially just an unprecedented filibuster of defense secretary nominee chuck hagel. is this the worst you've ever seen in congress? >> well,
of 43% trust republicans with gun policy. on the issue of the environment, 55% trust president obama more. foreign policy, it is 51% to 37%. theresa, nevada. caller: regarding president obama using executive orders to go around the republicans in the house, i am all for it. i am aware that this is a two- party democracy and we need republicans to be reasonable working party, but they have not been. the president has no choice but to go around them. john boehner has walked away. i am frustrated and the country is frustrated, other democrats are frustrated and scared. i am scared of the things they're willing to do to our country. he is doing what he has to do. i am all for his proposals, all for clean energy and comprehensive immigration, i am for gun legislation. i am for all of them. i am center-left, that is progressive. i think the country is definitely going progressive. i do not understand where the republicans want to obstruct and go with their small mindedness and small government proposals that they think that they can push through on the american people that i do not think a
on how do we grow this economy. it did he make the environment better dealing with congress? you're getting ready for the sequester battle and the sequester battle on march 1 and for the democratic election in 2014, perhaps sweat a little bit, there are seven of them in the senate and up for reelection in red states and climate change, pushing some of these ideas probably don't sell that much in those states. >> you can add to that, gun control. one of the things that these red state democrats were going to go up for reelection in next year are scared to death about is precisely having to vote and here was obama saying over and over again, you deserve is vote. you want to be on the record. well, there are a lot of democrats who don't want to be on the record in all of these positions and i think he will-- i think he's looking for his legacy not looking for a senator here or there in the congress, he wants to be remembered for a man who changed america, that's what he said started with obamacare and now this litany of programs. you know, he says you can't cut your way to prosperit
audience and before we get into the political environment of 2014 and 2016 will begin before we know it. i thought it was very powerful at the end with the gun stories, the personal stories, the people in the box with the first lady and will it change in i votes? we won't know that for weeks if not months. he ended on a high note. >> may not have changed votes. what about minds and hearts of the american people? david, you said you thought he would be hostile and angry, not much. >> i thought he was surprisingly even handed and talked in a bipartisan way. if you look at the substance of it, of course, republicans will challenge that, but nonetheless i thought it was an audacious speech. he embraced old-fashioned liberalism in a way we haven't seen in a long time. bill clinton said the era of big government is over and tonight it seemed to be coming back. >> was it the full loaf? >> i think it was every slice the president wanted not to extend that metaphor too far. i think he set a tone here that his advisers really wanted which is the american public doesn't expect us to agree on everythi
on the environment. belief in science. and this right wing crowd doesn't want to buy into any of this. >> bill: you know what really offends me tonight so there will be parents of the kids who were shot down and killed in newtown, connecticut right. then you're going to have ted nugent who called them props. parents in chicago who have lost their kids. another city. calls them all props. >> a number of people every day that die from gun violence. >> bill: it is just sick for the republicans to allow him to come in. so what are you looking forward to tonight? what are you expecting? >> i was going to talk about the issues you just mentioned. to me, it is always about jobs and the economy. we're still -- we lost -- you've heard me say this far too many times. we lost five million manufacturing jobs from 2000 until 2010. we've gained about 500,000 of them back. that's really the ticket for so many americans the middle class. it is not the only answer. when we see wages decline and we see so many people able to keep up in life, manufacturing jobs, you know, higher tech manufacturing jobs, jobs that sor
of environments, which makes him completely unfit to be the director of central intelligence. stephanie: let me review. instead of being the heads of the c.i.a., he should be executed into treason. we should turn that into a tribunal. >> that's what they peddle. stephanie: ok, let's end with linda harvey from mission america. what's that? >> one of those web radio shows that seems to be popular amongst the righties. >> he would cave in and allow homosexual identity and attraction to be respected and welcomed among their boys. that would mean mobile spiritual and possibly physical corruption, plain and simple. parents and grandparents in our nation are appalled at the irresponsibility of this potential move. the delay is not necessarily a good sign. what the national boy scouts may be hoping for is for more dialogue. in other words ways to pressure local troop leaders and national christian groups threatening to disaffiliate if this new policy goes through. the delay also allows homosexual groups to mount bigger nationwide campaigns to spin the issue as a matter of hate versus love and tolerance
cosponsor of the cap and trade bill as it came through the environment and public works committee. >> bill: before the state of the union, the last time i saw you was at the senate judiciary hearing on guns where there was a witness gun safety, gayle trotter from the independent forum who said every woman needs an ar-15 and let me tell you this story about this one woman in her house and somebody broke in. she had her gun and shot them dead. that's why every woman needs an ar-15. you pointed out there's something wrong with her story. >> she was using a regular shotgun that none of the laws that we were considering would have made illegal. so to the extent she was trying to make a point that the legislation that we were considering would impede a woman's right to defend herself her example didn't prove that point. to the extent she was making a larger rhetorical point that it is a women's rights issue and a women's issue to defend yourself with exotic weaponry, she was able to make that point. >> bill:er are he hadert to to you was you don't understand, you're not a woman. >> she's right a

pushed to ban styrofoam in manhattan. >> it's not just terrible for the environment. it's another thing that's terrible for the taxpayers. styrofoam increases the cost of recycling by as much as $20 per ton because it has to be removed, something we know is environmentally destructive that is costing taxpayers money and that is easily replaceable, i think is something we can do without. >> joining me michael barbareau covers mayor bloomberg for "the no, times." good to see you. >> good to be here. >> he wants to take styrofoam out of new york city stores and restaurants. how feetible is th ibfeasible i? >> entirely feasible. this is like the cockroach of trash. >> the cockroach of trash. >> it never dies, it doesn't biodegrade, it breaks apart, ends up in the water system, being 20,000 tons of it in the city's landfills and he thinks it's unnecessary. >> and we think this is something that he can get done before he leaves office? >> yes. he's had a little more difficulty with banning other things like a 32-ounce soda but this one it appears can he get done through the city council which
